Legacies of My Beloved

I started this painting this July and just now finished.  It is the first one I have done for my children, Morgan and Parker.  The process just took a while, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.  The blue dragonfly is for Morgan and has the kanji symbol, "ontoku", which means compassion and blessing.  The Green dragonfly is Parker's and has the kanji symbol, "warai", which means laughter and smile.  My boys have forever instilled these amazing qualiies in me and I promise to carry them forward.

Stepping Stones

I'm taking an on-line class called Chaos and Calm.  The instructors are teaching me a lot about painting with acylics.  This particular assignment taught us how to blend the paints.  I am really happy with my results!

I LOVE the results I got from carving my own stamp of "Aspen"!!  So this photo shows the carved stamp at the bottom and the printed image at top.  I LOVE it the way it is!!
